leaves wings and other such things

safely hidden in the earth

scavenging birds busy against a blue sky

 

  Nature is not a place to visit, it is home.  
—Gary Snyder

figure quiet & hidden underground

  Earth teach me to forget myself
  as melted snow forgets its life.
  Earth teach me resignation
  as the leaves which die in the fall.
  Earth teach me courage
  as the tree which stands all alone.
  Earth teach me regeneration
  as the seed which rises in the spring.
—William Alexander, A Father’s Book, 1997
